The Miss Virginia Teen USA competition is the pageant that selects the representative for the state of Virginia in the Miss Teen USA pageant.

Virginia is one of the more successful states at Miss Teen USA, and is placed in the top twenty in terms of number and value of placements [1]. Their most successful decade was the 1980s.

No Miss Virginia Teen USA has won the Miss Teen USA crown, but their highest placement came in the first year of competition, when Tina Marocco placed 1st runner-up to Ruth Zakarian of New York.

Virginia ties the record for the most Teens to cross over to win the Miss Virginia USA title and compete at Miss USA with eight in all. One of these is Kristi Lauren Glakas, a Triple Crown winner who competed at Miss USA 2004 and placed 3rd runner-up at Miss America 2006. The most recent Miss Virginia USA, Catherine Muldoon, is a former teen, though from Miss New York Teen USA 2004.
